NATURAL HEALING AT SPA HOTEL DĚVÍN – PEAT.
The treatment facilities at Spa Hotel Děvín offer clients a unique, effective treatment using a natural resource – the locally-available peat.
Warm peat applied directly to the body promotes increased blood-flow to bodily tissues and the body as a whole, releases tension, and alleviates pain. The advantages of the wrap include the slower warming of the body, which gradually releases heat and has an analgesic effect, with improved mobility. Peat wraps have outstanding healing effects on the body, which have been known for centuries.
Wraps are generally applied to the back, shoulders and cruciate area, or limb joints, and are applied by placing a heated peloid layer of about 3-5 cm thickness to the prescribed area of the body. Following application the patient stays in the same position for 20 minutes, after which they have a cleansing shower, without the use of soap or other hygiene agents, and a period of rest.
The suitability of peat treatment is always based on medical recommendation. Following examination and overall assessment by the physician, wraps can also be applied to clients with compensated circulatory conditions. The immediate effect of peat wraps is analgesic and improves mobility. Peat wraps can be used for joint pain, acute and chronic conditions of rheumatic and traumatic origin, muscle contraction, diseases of the mobility system, of a degenerative and injury-related nature, and diseases of the circulatory, metabolic and nervous systems.
Spa Hotel Děvín uses an extract of peloid (peat) from the V Borkách deposit of the Čistá – Krásno natural healing source. Its unique ingredients make it highly effective. Peat is one of the peloids (pelos means ‘mud’ in Greek) and was created over thousands of years through accumulation and fermenting processes from the decomposition of organic remains, chiefly of plants predominantly composed of sphagnum in a damp environment with no access to air.
